My first oil painting is coming along okay. Though it's not yet finished there are a few things I'll do differently on the next one. The big thing is I'm not going to try and work so fast. In the process of painting this it's clear the subject deserves to be done larger than 6" X 6". Photographing a wet oil painting is pretty tough, so if it looks a bit funky it's because of the sheen. Only three of the fifty or more photos I took survived. So here is the unfinished painting.
I'm also putting together the first posting for my sculpting blog which should be up some time tomorrow. Fun fun fun.
